ok so i'm sure some ones asked before, probably not that often but is it possible to mate the all wheel drive set up from the grand prix ste to a j body 2nd gen? i'm sure theres some mods involved but how much?

You mean 6000 STE. You'd have to swap out the complete drivetrain and probably make or have made new driveshafts, motor/transmission mounts etc... It can be done but unless you're a skilled fabricator it's probably going to cost alot more than you'll ever get out of it.

Yeah. Good luck finding a 6000 STE with the drive train still attached. And you are limited to an automatic transmission.

I've seen a couple 6000 STEs with the bodies in awful shape. They're fairly difficult to find, but if you had the time, space and skills it could be done.

Now that sounds like an awesome idea. My idea for an AWD second gen, was using the drive train from an Astro Van AWD. I kinda walked it off, and the wheel base seems to be about the same. I haven't actually looked into what it would take to make such a swap. Maybe someday I will. LoL

Why even bother asking if its possible, ANYTHING is possible. If you have the time and skills you would be out getting this done already. Its not gonna happen is my bet, and on some really far off chance you do il be the first to eat my words.

Alot more fabrication because the Astro was a rwd vehicle not fwd like the pontiac 6000, with the awd 6000 STE the motor is mounted transversely like Cavaliers.
